Skoda have unveiled the Skoda Fabia Combi Greenline II and the Roomster Greenline II. These new models have been facelifted and fitted with new technology designed to further reduce fuel consumption and Co2 emission levels. The most important innovations incude a new engine, the 1.2 TDI CR DPF/75bhp DPF with common rail (high pressure direct injection), start/stop technology, energy recuperation and gear recommendation (on a Maxi DOT display). Fuel consumption is just 83.1mpg and co2 emissions of 89g/km for the Skoda Fabia Estate Greenline II. The Skoda Roomster Greenline II returns 67.3mpg and has co2 emissions of 109g/km.
In addition to the lower Co2 emissions the contaminant levels have also been reduced. The new engine on the Skoda Roomster Greenline II and the Skoda Fabia Estate Greenline II complies with the EU 5 emission standard that for diesel engines has stricter regulations for nitrogen oxides and solid particles. The gear ratios of the car's five speed transmission are identical to those of the ordinary Fabia and Roomster models fitted with the same engine. As a result the Greenline II models offers the same responsiveness but with lower consumption. Energy recuperation is another state-of-the-art technology introduced on the new Skoda Fabia Estate GreenLine II and Skoda Roomster Greenline II. Effective utilisation of the vehicle's kinetic energy for battery recharging is a simple system that helps to save fuel continuously. The two systems, start/stop and braking energy recovery work in partnership and, along with other measures, help to make the operation of these new models as environmentally-friendly as possible. The application of the energy recovery system has helped to reduce the CO2 emissions by 2 - 4 g/km.
Other technologies Skoda is introducing on the Greenline II models to improve economy are the gear recommendation system, which helps the driver make optimum use of the engine's potential, a lowered and aerodynamically-covered chassis and, last but not least, low rolling resistance tyres.
